About Alex

A SWEDISH ART DIRECTOR LIVING, WORKING AND DREAMING IN NEW YORK





Mission
I create intuitive, visual and interactive experiences with the purpose of making people feel connected and inspired. I aim to evoke a feeling, an idea and an experience that lasts.

Focus
I want to make design count, and it only does if it’s made with passion, hard work and a tireless attention to detail. Being open and curious, having a learn-for-life-mindset and staying up to date with digital news and trends are the mantras that keep me evolving and producing work I believe in.

Creative Community
I love giving back to the creative community, and I have the privilege to be a recurring assessor at the Digital Media and Motion Creative programmes at Hyper Island. I’ve also had the honor of holding design workshops at Parsons School of Design, Chalmers University and Bergh’s School of Communication.

Where To Find Me
I reside in New York and I’m available for collaborations involving Art Direction, Interactive Design and Motion Design.
